I have fond memories of spending hours fruit picking Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world shirt. Strawberries apples plums and vegetables in nurseries. An enjoyable job and one this country should be ashamed of not developing. As they say, grow your own at home. Home being the UK. For a start it is a fair rate of pay, many consumers would mind a few pence on every item of shopping, many are finding it difficult at prices today, and thirdly think why you’ve never seen a farmer who has to drive across fields etc drive a ford fiesta. A vast majority don’t have new Range Rovers, more likely to be Landrovers or pick ups covered in mud.
I see you didn’t mention fond memories of picking gooseberries or blackcurrants Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world shirt. But yes, they were great days. Blackberries and taking the thorns out when you got back home. It’s the people who are out of work because of the virus, the people on the sick with ‘anxiety’ still won’t be applying, that they’re applying means they have no other choice. They might have to travel far and bail after the first week as they’ve never done work like this before.
